Teen Counseling

  • Does your adolescent have trouble expressing their thoughts and feelings?

  • Are you frustrated with your teen's behavior?

  • Does your teen have a hard time opening up to you or others?

  • Do you feel your teen is too sensitive or highly emotional?

Anyone can make changes to their life, but it can feel overwhelming to face those problems alone. Together, we will try to understand what is really underlying your teen's struggle. When you understand what's going on, you are able to better support them in reaching their full potential.

I use an integrative and holistic approach, in that, I apply several techniques and strategies when working with teens in order to provide the best care based on their individual needs, so that together we can unearth behaviors that may prohibit change.

I work with teens on a variety of issues such as:

  • Anxiety

  • Bullying

  • Social isolation

  • Self-esteem

  • Family conflict

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Behavioral concerns

  • Trauma

  • Life transitions

  • Relationship struggles

  • Grief and loss

  • Anger

  • Depression
